review by Harriet Klausner
In 1770 the Colonial Governor of North
Carolina Tryon drafts Jamie Fraser to head up a militia
that is to help rout the rebellious Regulators. Jamie
names his son-in-law Roger MacKenzie, who just married
his daughter Briana, as an officer in his unit. Roger
makes it clear that Jemmy is his son regardless of whether
it his seed or that of Bree's rapist Stephen Bonnet.
While Claire practices medicine, Jamie continues to
search for information on Bonnet.
Bonnet and an associate accost Jamie's
Aunt Jocasta and her new husband in their home in search
of gold brought from Scotland during the last failed
Stuart effort to regain the throne. The adventures of
Jamie, Roger, Claire and Bree continue as they struggle
with health problems and finding Bonnet.
The latest adventures of Diana Gabaldron's
time traveling trio and Jamie are as exciting and insightful
as any of its predecessors. Readers see inside the character's
hearts and know they remain true to form. The audience
also obtains a wondrous look at North Carolina prior
to the Revolution. The story line is loaded with action
through the deeds and motives of the four prime players.
Fans of the series will be delighted with this novel
and there are threads left dangling for another mega
epic from the great author. Read
more about it...
